Well, I hung out behind the camera on Friday and I think I got a good
chunk of the flights that went up.

It's working OK for me right now, and has been for the past half hour.
Great photos, Dan and Guy. Thanks for making them available.

You didn't give your email address, and your reply-to looks like an anonymous...so I replied to the group. Sorry for the waste of bandwidth for those who are limited.
Cool. You caught 3 images of my rocket "Reluctant" on the "Friday PM" page 1 of 7. They are images P1010025, P1010026 and P1010027. It was a scratchbuilt 4" powered by an AMW K670GG. It reached 6384 Ft.
I would appreciate having the full size images if you could email them to me.
I gave it the name "reluctant" after the motor reload I bought for it at last year's LDRS refused to light no matter what we used as an ignitor. I ended up returning that reload. As you can see, from the photos, this motor lit first time - no problem.
Thanks, Dan.

We ended up putting so much pyrogen on that last igniter it probably added a D impulse to the motor. :-) :-) Still no go. The motor was disassembled and grain ends and core sanded too. It was dead, dead, dead.
I forgot to mention that after the beautiful flight this year, Reluctant disappeared entirely. I lost sight of it when I looked away to reassure the LCO that it was under drogue, and never saw it again that day.
Some kind soul found it and turned it in. A couple of friends of ours were kind enough to go out of their way to deliver it to my hotel room. I was very glad not to have lost that R-DAS. Rocket folks are good people.

Excellent photos! Great camera. And you have a super photo of my Sumo on a G64 (P1010090). I was wondering if I could load it and a copule of your others of my Black Brant X on my website and give you the credit? Thanks.
